Field of Application
Coating for protection against penetration of pollutants and water, and for enhancing the loadability of new, existing and repaired exposed aggregate (washed) concrete, textured and fair-faced concrete surfaces.
The product is provided with a preservative against deterioration in the coating due to algal and moss attack.
Fair-faced concrete, completed with even form work (shuttering): The material should only be applied in unpigmented form.

Suitable SubstratesNormal and heavy concrete, Disbocret® mortars (fillers & surfacers) and mineral renders/plasters.
Cementitious flow mortars, ameliorated with synthetic resin, must be checked for compatibility by trial application, if necessary.
The adhesive tensile (pull-off) strength of substrates must be 1.0 N/mm2 on an average, with a minimum individual value of 0.5 N/mm2.
The substrate must be clean, sound/stable, and free of loose/brittle material that may prevent good adhesion. Remove adhesion diminishing substances (e.g. oils, fats/greases) by suitable means. Soiling of the substrate with e.g. moss and algae growth or vitreous, unstable cement laitance must be removed using e.g. solid blasting medium and suitable equipment.
The substrate must be free from corrosive substances (e.g. chlorides).
Repair spallings, cracks, pores, shrink holes, surface roughness and unevenness thoroughly with adequate materials out of the Disbocret® System, according to described standards, to achieve an even, sufficiently thick protective coat. Repairs may be more or less noticeable, depending on workmanship.
Preparation of Material
Dilute the material with 20 % of tap (potable) water for priming coat and mix thoroughly until a uniform material is achieved.
Intermediate and Finishing Coats
Disbocret® 535 BetonLasur is ready to use, but should be stirred up before application. Tint the material via ColorExpress station for preparing a protective semi-transparent scumble/glaze coat on concrete surfaces.
Method of Application
The material can be applied with paint brush or roller.
It is advisable to apply the material to the full surface using soft brushes, e.g. oval brush or whitewash brush. Apply crosswise with short action. After a short waiting time, the surface should be treated with a wiper to achieve an even glaze effect.
The material should not be applied in direct sunlight or on sun heated substrates, during strong wind, fog or rain, high relative humidity or imminent rain or frost, etc. Protective tarpaulins should be used, if necessary. In Germany: Follow VOB, part C DIN 18 363, paragraph 3.
Min. 80 µm dry film thickness is necessary to produce an effective surface protection.
Surface Coating System
Prime normally absorbent, textured and exposed aggregate concrete surfaces with one coat of Disbocret® 535 BetonLasur, diluted with 20 % of tap/potable water. In addition, very highly or irregularly absorbent substrates should primarily be treated with CapaSol LF Concentrate (diluted with tap water in 1 : 2 ratio) for equalising the absorbency.
To enhance the frost and de-icing-salt resistance, Disboxan 450 Fassadenschutz can also be used as an impregnating priming coat.
Prime uncoated horizontal top view surfaces with Disboxid 420 E.Mi Primer and strew/scatter quartz sand Disboxid 942 Mischquarz evenly on the surface.
Intermediate and Finishing Coat
Apply Disbocret® 535 BetonLasur without dilution.
Depending on substrate brightness the applied transparent protective coating may yield to a slight colour deepening effect. A trial application should be completed on concrete elements made of white cement or with white marble additives, as colour variation may occur.
The colour of glaze/scumble coats should always match the substrate in shade, in order to avoid an uneven colouration of the glazed surface. To avoid lapping, the material should be applied by min. two qualified skilled workers, wet-on-wet and without interruption.
Wall glazes are translucent (semi-transparent) materials, hence the colour and texture of the substrate will be noticeable. The visual appearance is highly influenced by the colour, degree of absorbency, condition of the substrate, film thickness of applied glaze, tools used for application and individual mode of operation. Therefore a trial application is essential.
|Priming Coat||Approx. 110–220 ml/m2 |
|Intermediate and Finishing Coat|
|on coarse washed concrete or rough-textured surfaces||Approx. 110–220 ml/m2 |
undiluted material per coat
|on even or finely textured surfaces||Approx. 90–220 ml/m2 |
undiluted material per coat
Consumption is highly depending on the absorbency and texture of the substrate, hence a trial application is advisable.
